    Hi all,

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1520, and every time I boot it up, the first time it wont go to the OS, but it will go to a black screen with a little flashing cursor in the top left. Upon turning off and on again, it boots to OS. I was wondering what causes this issue?

    Cheers,
    James

    Are you sure it's getting turned off and not into hibernate?
    Boot order? Make sure hard drive is first.
    Run a diag on the drive maybe.
